A Move to Capture Irish
Votes. The Irish Republican Na
tional League is in session here to ar
range for campaign work in the in
terest of the Republican party during
the coming presidential canvass. It
was decided to maintain headquar
ters in Chicago, New York and
Washington. Speakers sent out by
the league will be urged to attack the
free trade theory, as the surest means
of alienating Irish votes from the
Democratic party, on the ground that
free trade is an English measure.
Twenty-three States were represented
at the session. J. Curran Keagan,
of Colorado, was elected general secretary.
The United States Senate is against
free ships. Twenty Democrats voted
for them, but three Democrats and
twenty-eight Republicans said no.
This, too, in the face of facts that are
